Divine Essence is never at a loss for words. The poet and spoken-word artist has been performing around the Valley for more than seven years, and hosting open mic nights since 2002, when she started a regular spoken-word shindig at Livingston's soul food restaurant in Scottsdale. When Livingston's closed, Divine moved her open mic nights to various other spots including A Shot of Java, Mighty Cup, the Paper Heart, and Majerle's. Her latest gig is at ASUs Wells Fargo Arena.
